HSP is proud to be a partner to a digital initiative that celebrates this tradition called In Her Own Right: Women Asserting Their Civil Rights, 1820-1920. Focused on more than 45 collections from 8 regional repositories, this project showcases archival materials that explore women’s work leading up to the passage of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote. The project digitizes these materials and makes them searchable through a single online interface that is enhanced by contextual historical essays.
